Seaside Soiree

| January 1, 2014 | Parties

Beach-loving beauties took a nostalgic trip to O.C.’s shores during the Crystal Cove Alliance’s vintage-inspired gala, aptly themed Wish You Were Here. The 420 guests bid on silent auction prizes, dined on a gourmet meal—prepared by The Resort at Pelican Hill’s Executive Chef Jean-Pierre Dubray and other culinary talents—and danced to breezy tunes from Wayne Foster Entertainment. But the wave-making moment came with the news that the nonprofit had raised more than $285,000 to conserve the historic spot’s coastline, and backcountry and offshore habitats. Ah, life really is better at the sea.
